Best car ive owned, too !
By david300 on
Vehicle2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI bought my 2002 SantaFe in that year brand new.
Its been very reliable and ive babied the car on doing maintenance which i do myself.
It routinely gets a combined 21 MPG with 23 on the Highway at 70 mph.
It is very peppy and in fact, the front tires will spin from a start if you take off real quick.
I upgraded the crummy LongTrail Tires to Michelin LX Tires and went from 225's
-- the extra width makes it handle superbly and they dont rub on anything.
The Factory radio / tape/ cd
player went out at 75,000 miles so i went with a new Pioneer from BestBuy.
Other than that, i had a Temperature Sensor go out around 80,000 miles...and thats been it for failures.
Its been good.
Best FeaturesPrecise handling with the wider tires i put on it. Very good performance from the V-6 motor.
Worst FeaturesNeeds much better factory tires . The ones they put on were noisy and didnt hold up well. The front seat needs to go back alot further for someone over 6' ; I personally moved mine back another 5" for much greater legroom.
